It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas . . . Or, it will be soon! The AACA Museum is feverishly planning and building a Spectacular Christmas display to delight kids from 1-92 again this season!

christmas-stripFestivities begin on November 16th and run daily through January 6, 2013 from 9 AM – 5 PM Daily. The Museum will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve Day, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day.

Our main exhibit gallery will feature a Cruise through Time from the early 1900’s in New York City through the 1970’s in San Francisco. In addition to the antique vehicles and artifacts, you’ll also see dozens of decorated Christmas trees in a variety of holiday colors and themes!

Our elves are also gearing up for some other great attractions:

  • Ernie’s Taxi from the holiday classic “It’s a Wonderful Life”
  • Trains, Trains and more model trains throughout the building
  • Herbie the Love Bug from “Herbie Rides Again”
  • Vintage dolls, toys, games
  • Hess Trucks, diecast car collections
  • Sammy the 29ft Snow Plow
  • Great Grinch Scavenger Hunt

Kids will enjoy the interactive area in our lower level gallery where they can build and race cars, get their photo taken in an antique car and build a Chuggington model railroad. Everyone loves the full sized antique buses and the 1940’s diner along with the Motorcycles on display. New this year, will be another model railroad display along with holiday trees decorated by local schools – vote for your favorite!
